Abandoned. Ignored by their government. Left to perish.
Imagine a life filled with bomb blasts, violence, chaos and fear. At a moment’s notice you might have to run for your life, with nothing but the clothes on your back — or die. Now imagine having to decide whether to move your elderly parents amidst this chaos and despair. Or having to choose between taking them ... or your children. This was the reality for thousands of persecuted Syrians. And now, across the war-torn country, in empty, broken-down towns, a remnant remains. The elderly. The widowed. Even some children ... left behind.
